Joker is expected to attract several Batman fans from across Pakistan and cinema houses are preparing for an influx of customers. The poster, uploaded by Cinepax, already has users flooding the thread, planning on getting the tickets booked.

Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Joker was recently awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.

The film explores the origins of the most renowned DC villain of Gotham city. It is set in the early 80’s and has been directed by Todd Phillips.

Arther Fleck, the man who turns into Joker, is a mentally-ill clown who turns to a life of crime and terror as he goes through unbearable circumstances. Rejected by society, he turns into its biggest nightmare.

According to Euronews, critics have also claimed Joaquin could win his first Oscar for his performance. Philip De Demlyen, a critic for Time Out, called his interpretation of the character “magnetic,” as the story follows his transformation from vulnerable loner to confident villain. Jack King at GQ wrote, “Much of what shouldn’t work is sold in entirely by Phoenix’s performance. if Joker ultimately proves anything, it’s that he’s the best actor of his generation.”
